Here is the entrance to the flea market. I want to tell you a few things about the trip on Tuesday. When you start into the Amish area, you will see some of the best tended gardens Every house has a garden, some are very big gardens, some families have two gardens.....not a weed in sight. They are very good gardeners. I think the women and children help with it all. Many years ago, I read in the paper an article written by an Amish lady. She told of a day in her life ......now I am not kidding, she did more in one day than most people do in a week. Busy ladies. When we were driving their roads, we saw every kind of cart being pulled by one little horse. We try to respect the horse and carriages, because it gets scary if the horse is spooked in any way. You may even see the driver out holding the reins and calming the horse down.
My brother was a state trooper up north in Indiana. He said some times the Amish would be drunk, and they just let the horse take itself on home ....so in other words the horse is driving. But even though they know the way home, they run stop signs, that is how the Amish man gets caught drinking. LOL...I think my brother was joking, don't you???? xoxo
